“If only I had…” – Hope for Today
Guilt, remorse and regret are feelings I used to grapple with on a daily basis. In order for each of them to exist I must assume that, at some point and time, I was wrong. This concept of ‘wrong’, and it’s counterpart ‘right’, helps support ideas like righteousness, control, failure and domination. When you think about it, there is very little love, kindness, compassion, understanding, empathy, or helpfulness in right and wrong. When I look at my experiences, and evaluate them kindly as opportunities to learn, grow and adjust, I have no regrets. When I look at others’ opinions, actions and beliefs as their unique preferences, I can let go of resentment and use my program to determine the level of involvement I wish to have with them in the future. When I let go of the past and live fully in this beautiful day, ILML!
